We're loving Ryan Lochte at the 2012 Olympic Games, mostly because he looks so darn delicious in those tiny Speedos. Despite his good looks, the speed-lover doesn't always get the best press and many have critiqued his ego. But the reality is, the swimmer knows how to laugh at himself.
Case in point? Lochte appears in a new video on Funny or Die where he pokes fun at his comment about peeing in the pool.
"Of course," Lochte told Seacrest last week when asked if swimmers pee in the Olympic pool. "I think there's just something about getting into chlorine water that you just automatically go. [I didn't] during the races, but I sure did in warm-up."
In the "LOCHTv" video, the 27-year-old University of Florida grad jokes that he considers a pool to be the world's biggest toilet and only allows himself to pee when in the pool.
"Yes, I can only pee in the pool," he deadpans. "If I see a toilet, I'm definitely not peeing there."
There's one thing he won't do: He won't poop in the pool because "they shut down the whole pool."
Gotta love a guy with a sense of humor! He tries to show it off on Twitter, but sometimes his jokes fall flat. Check out a few of our favorite deep thoughts directly from the mind of Lochte.
Be a Star
"Always reach for the moon cuz if u slip up u will still be a star!! #JEAH," he tweeted on July 31.
Buy Your Dreams
"everyone is selling dreams until u can buy one," he wrote on July 30, adding "all my problems would be second and all my worries will be gone."
You're Doing It Wrong
"Rocks, paper, siccor........," he tweeted on July 24.
We're Not Seeing It
It's easy to make your dreams happen, just ask Lochte.
"How do u make your dreams come true? By the mirror on the wall! #jeah," he wrote on July 14.
Anyone Want to Lend a Hand
"Gotta shave for tomorrow the start of #OlympicTrials but can't shave my back help me out! Lol," he tweeted on June 24.
Pretty sure he had more than one volunteer.
Truer Words Have Never Been Tweeted
"Sometimes u just gotta stay ahead of ur shadow," he tweeted on June 16, adding another bit of wisdom a few minutes later. "When u jump off make sure u land feet first."
So true, Ryan; so true.
